Ve vůni je cítit cokolada, pomeranče a bylinky. Barva krásně tmavá. V chuti zejména pomeranc, vanilka. Závěr v chuti trochu pepře, která přechází do dřevitosti.

Unikátní rum v netypickém balení. Goslings family reserve pochází ze stejné směsi Bermudského rumu jako je u klasického goslings dark seal rumu. V dubových sudech leží ale mnohem déle. Stárne, dokud nedostane takovou lahodnou chuť, jako má například stará whisky nebo koňak. Je tedy více než jen tekutina a láhev. Každá láhev má proto voskovou pečeť na hrdle a individuální číslo. V San Francisku získal dvojitou zlatou medaili.

I’m a fan of the regular Gosling’s and it’s my go-to for a Dark and Stormy so I was looking forward to this one. However, I was left a little underwhelmed.

The nose is very nice with notes of caramel and fruit. However, the first taste is extremely sweet with tastes of chocolate and more caramel.

I think this would be nice as an dessert drink even if it is a little expensive.

This is a nice, rich, black rum. Essentially, an aged version of the classic. It has that unique Goslings nose, which is very nice. It also tastes like Goslings but smoother, and with a bit more depth and creamy mouth feel. Overall, very nice and good for both sipping and mixing.

Very basic name, but very nice flavor and smooth too. Worth the price.

Classy presentation in a dark, wax-dipped champagne bottle. I don’t normally comment too much on a rum’s colour, either, but happily make an exception here as this is truly a gorgeous dark, reddish mahogany hue, with copper edges. It looks “old” and elegant. Before nosing or tasting, I judged the colour of this rum to be amongst the very best I have seen.

The nose offers pronounced, deep aromas of oak, molasses, dark fruits (esp. raisin) and baking spices like nutmeg, clove and ginger.! It is very captivating. I nosed the Glencairn for 10 minutes before taking the first sip. There is a deep and brooding quality to the nose that is simply incredible.

The palate is focused and structured, with flavours echoing the nose - wood, molasses and spice. There is just a slight hint of sweetness but this is definitely not a sweet rum. Fabulous! A slight black pepper note introduces the medium-length finish. To me, everything about this rum conjures up an ideal of what great rum should be. Simply sensational! Highly recommended.

I did not expect such a great rum from this brand. Truly remarkable. Dark, smooth, and sweet. Easy sipping rum for a newer rum fan to break into straight up. Very cool bottle with wax over a cork. Again, this caught me by surprise. Found it for 74$.

This is the best rum I have ever tasted. It should be served over ice without any mixers. almost bourbon like in flavor.

Den är intressant men inte riktigt min smak, kan inte sätta fingret på vad det är.

Nice dark amber color
Nose: raisins, Seville orange, vanilla , dried dates
Taste: spicy, vanilla, raisins and Sevilla orange, warm feeling with some bitter aftertaste.
The rhum would rest longer in the glass to open up - but it was too late for me when I heard that (I only had 3 cl to taste it and I did it very quickly).
